Vintage Scandinavian Double Sided Swedish Tapestry Rug 48050
The narrow line work and minimalistic presentation gives the entire piece an air of experimentation and unconstrained expressionism.
Vintage Double Sided Scandinavian Tapestry Rug, Origin: Scandinavia, Circa: Mid 20th Century – Boasting a unique and alluring composition, this vintage carpet is an excellent example of the aesthetic range and experimentation that characterized mid-twentieth century Scandinavian carpet production. A double-sided Scandinavian double sided Swedish Tapestry rug, this vintage carpet features flat-woven faces that are effectively the inverse of one another. One side features a white background and eccentric lifework woven in a pale teal blue. Meanwhile, the other side features a pale teal blue background, and a lifework rendered in white. The images are intriguing: intersecting, thin lines, with a negative space in the center that is filled to bursting with small circular detail elements. The impression of the composition is unique – the narrow line work and minimalistic presentation gives the entire piece an air of experimentation and unconstrained expressionism.
